From simple molecules to nanostructured and bioactive materials

24.11.2008
a new International PhD program offered by University of Warsaw in Poland

A new International PhD program - supported by the Polish Foundation of Science - is offered by the Faculty of Chemistry, University of Warsaw.

The program designed in cooperation with well-recognized international research Partner institutions is entitled "From simple molecules to nanostructured and bioactive materials". It is divided into four thematic lines reflecting increasing complexity of the studied materials:

Simple systems with complex molecular interactions,
Nanostructured materials and biomaterials,
From new materials to devices
and Biomacromolecules and therapeutic systems - modeling and development.
Students from all countries are invited to apply. The Program aims to train future scientists able to work in highly competitive environment and with abilities to work across disciplines.

Duration of the program is 4 years, including 6-24 months spent abroad in the foreign Partner institutions.

Up to 18 students will be admitted to the first or second year of the International PhD studies. The successful candidates will be able to choose a Principal Supervisor and select the subject of the project (download subjects of theses).

A fellowship of 3000 PLN/month (tax-free) + 500 PLN/month (insurance) is offered, which compares well with the average salary in Poland. An additional allowance of 1500 PLN /month will be provided for the stay at the foreign partner institution.

Tuition fees for all coursework and health insurance are covered by the fellowship. The University will assist in finding accommodation.

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...
